The current stable version of GCC 5, GCC 5.1.1, has been added to openSUSE Factory and in turn will see all packages rebuilt against this new compiler and this will become the default compiler in the openSUSE Tumbleweed snashot due out later in the week.

GCC 5 brings many new compiler features and is one of the most exciting GNU Compiler Collection updates in a few years. GCC 5.1 has been shipping since late April and already made its way into Fedora 22 and a few other distributions while now it will get additional testing and usage with being exposed to the openSUSE audience.
